Man Utd star Tyrell Malacia has incredible Memphis Depay-style lion tattoo covering entire back | The Sun

MANCHESTER UNITED star Tyrell Malacia has revealed that he also has a huge lion tattoo covering his back like his compatriot Memphis Depay.

The 22-year-old full-back headed to Old Trafford from Feyenoord for an initial £12.9million this summer.


And after a rocky start by the Red Devils, he is now firmly finding his feet with a number of impressive displays.

Now Malacia, who shone in a new role for Holland at the weekend, has given his Instagram followers a glimpse of what is under the shirt as he showed off his incredible ink work.

And it is remarkably similar to his Netherlands teammate and former United winger Depay’s.

The now Barcelona ace, 28, actually got his lion tattoo while he was at the Theatre of Dreams.

He previously said of his artwork: “The lion on my back represents me – I have the heart of a lion. I got it done in Manchester.

“It took a long time because it's so big, maybe like 24 hours in total.

“I always had a feeling that I've been brought up in the jungle: I was always outside, I've been to rough areas and I've been through rough times.

“The lion is for me, 'the king of the jungle,' and I always stayed on my feet even though it was rough.”

It remains unknown when and where Malacia got his done – but he will definitely be hoping for more success at United than Depay.

The attacker previously admitted that he was too immature to succeed in the Premier League.

He scored just two in 33 games during his doomed two-year spell in England before leaving for Lyon in 2017.
